John Mc Gowan

Creator. Accidental entrepreneur. Problem Solver.
I always loved math. After 15 years of teaching math around the world, I found out the part I enjoyed was generating ideas and providing solutions...but from an entrepreneurial point of view. While teaching I made an app, g(Math), that grew to over 15 million users.
I sold it to Texthelp.
It grew into EquatIO, which now has almost 3 million users.
Now I am tending to my other apps at and I am in the process of growing them to scale.
I am l̶a̶z̶y̶ efficient. I want to automate mundane tasks and will spend 6 hours coding a solution to something that would take me 15 minutes to do once...but if I had to do it again I could at the click of a button! I remember spending days in math class programming my TI-81 to find solutions to the quadratic formula, rather than doing the homework. It was much more fun!
